A woman whose sideroblastic anemia had relapsed with progestogen and combined oral contraceptive therapy suffered further relapses in a (twin) pregnancy. Previous reports exist of relapses both from progestogens and in pregnancy, and we postulate a shared etiology. Affected women considering pregnancy or sex hormone usage should be advised accordingly.
